Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has accused Julius Berger and Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) of fighting against the actualization of the sovereign state of Biafra.
The IPOB leader made this allegation during one of his recent live broadcast on Radio Biafra.
Kanu alleged that Julius Berger and Shell don’t want the disintegration of Nigeria because of their investment in the country.
He said that the companies would rather work with the “Fulanis who they can continue to cheat” instead of working with IPOB.
“Do you know that Julius Berger and Shell are lobbying against IPOB?
“They don’t want the disintegration of the zoo because of their investment in the zoo and they don’t want any deal with IPOB either, rather they prefer deals with Fulanis who they can continue to cheat.
“Think about it. Just imagine if one of these companies are lobbying in favor of IPOB. Don’t you know that the zoo would have been history by now?
“Do you know that a year turn over of shell is 20 times more than zoo budget? Just a tip of an iceberg of what IPOB is fighting against.
“They don’t want the disintegration of the zoo because of their investment in the zoo.
“And they don’t want any deal with IPOB either, rather they prefer deals with Fulanis who they can continue to cheat.
“Think about it. Just imagine if one of these companies is lobbying in favor of IPOB. Don’t you know that the zoo would have been history by now?
“When you keep asking what are we doing ? what are we doing ? You think Biafra will just come when you pick up arms unprepared? This is why we failed before and I Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB shall not repeat the same mistake. If we go to war now without meeting the necessary people, and important government of the world, the zoo will just tag us rebels, terrorists and with their influence and wealth, the international communities shall buy into that deceit to join and carry out a second genocide against our people as they did in 1967- 70.
“Do you know that the zoo has already bought off all the major mainstream media of the world not to discuss Biafra in their platforms.
“Do you see why I always reverence his Excellency Late General Chukwu Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu for withstanding the world in a defensive battle for 30 months? He is greatest indeed but IPOB is here to complete that mission and we shall surely come out victorious because Chukwuokike has mandated us for this very divine mission.”
“To Hell With Your Biafra” — Uwazuruike Roasts Nnamdi Kanu
Founder of Biafra Independence Movement (BIM) Chief Ralph Uwazuruike has said that Biafra should not be realized if it would be a place where elder statesmen and religious leaders would be insulted and dehumanised.
He lambasted the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, for using the London-based Radio Biafra to haul insults and abuses on Igbo leaders and elders.
Uwazurike said this in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Social Media Matters, Comrade Emma N. Nnadi, and made available to reporters on Sunday.
He said Kanu, who he trained as one of his directors in the struggle, was now using the Radio Biafra to insult and blackmail “our elder statesmen like Chief Pete Edochie, Nnia Nwodo, Church and Muslim leaders in the country.”
Uwazuruike apologized to all the people that have been insulted by Nnamdi Kanu and the IPOB and blackmailed by Radio Biafra or any other Biafra news channels anywhere in the world.
He stated that in the new world order, the right of individuals to freedom of worship is allowed, stressing that “as Biafrans, we are not religious bigots.
“If the new Biafra will be a country where the freedom of religious worship will not be guaranteed, to hell with it.
“If the new Biafra as a country will not be better than Nigeria, to hell with it.
“If the new Biafra will be a nation where someone like Chief Pete Edochie, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Chief Nnia Nwodo, Alhaji Asari Dokubo (Elabo Edi Abali) and every other elders of the church in the land will be insulted and abused with all cheerful boldness, to hell with it” .
“Ndigbo should forgive the uncouth and irresponsible character” of Nnamdi Kanu.
Nnamdi Kanu Not Attacking Christianity, Says IPOB
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has said its Leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu never condemned Christianity but only attacked those they called fake pastors and men of God in Nigeria who refused to boldly speak up against the incessant and state sponsored killings and slaughtering of Christians in Nigeria.
According to IPOB, “Kanu’s condemnation was for religious leaders who deliberately kept quiet while Christians are killed in Nigeria, saying that does not amount to condemnation of Christianity, disrespect to Islam or any other religious body.
“He only condemned the evil of extermination of a particular religious group through state sponsored terrorism.
“Our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in his life, never condemned Christianity because he was raised in a Christian home by Christian parents and will never do such. He has respect for Christianity, Islam and other faith based religions around the world.
“”He is surrounded by Judeo-Christian faith practitioners of whom he is one. His parents died professing Judeo-Christian values. Only those fake pastors who believe solely in collecting tithes and offerings in churches without looking tangibly towards improving the lives of their fellow Christians in Nigeria are the ones behind this twisted narrative.
“May we also use this opportunity to appeal to all those who may have misunderstood our leader as disrespecting men of God or showing no regard for Christian doctrines to disabuse their minds and understand that he is only opposed to wolves in sheep clothing.
“Mazi Kanu, still has respect for honest men of God who have not compromised their divine mandate. Again, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not against any Biblical injunctions practiced by genuine Christians in reverence to God Almighty.
“For the umpteenth time, our Leader does not hate Christianity and will never attack the faith. What he is against is the twisting of some Christian doctrines by selfish and greedy pastors to fleece their brainwashed followers”, a statement by IPOB spokesman, Emma Powerful said.
The statement further said that “it is on record and confirmed by the Nigerian government that Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been at the forefront of defending Christians in Nigeria more than any Christian group or pastors and men of God have ever done.
“IPOB spends a huge amount of money every month in highlighting the plight of persecuted Christians in Nigeria and beyond. Over 80% of the content of his message on Twitter is about persecuted Christians.
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has been filling that gap for the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, not having a single social media presence in this digital age even with all their resources.
‘‘Our leader is unwavering in his divine assignment to liberate Biafrans and also every suffering Nigerian, everybody must therefore, support his ongoing expository effort which is a mandate from God Almighty”.
Uwazuruike Never Collapsed MASSOB Structure To IPOB, Says BIG
Biafra Internal Government (BIG) has refuted report alleging that the founder and leader of Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) otherwise called Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike had collapsed MASSOB structure to Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Chief Minister of the group, Anambra North zone, Elder Dennis Nworah who stated this Saturday in Onitsha, Anambra state, in company of Justice Minister, Damian Nzekwe and other executives, described the report as false, unfounded and figment of the imagination of enemies of MASSOB-BIM.
He said IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu was Uwazuruike’s boy who was sacked alongside others over their violent disposition in the struggle to actualize a sovereign state of Biafra.
He said, “Recall that Nnamdi Kanu and others were trained by Uwazuruike and because they were anti MASSOB they were sacked and Nnamdi Kanu went and founded IPOB.
“Therefore it is IPOB that will collapse its structure to join the main stream, its master, and not master joining apprentice/servant.”
Nworah maintained that MASSOB-BIM remained a non violence organization struggling to actualize a Biafran state following marginalization of the Igbo nation in a country they were part and parcel of.
The group further denied knowledge of receipt/ticket with the inscription, ‘Freedom Fighters’ being issued to transporters, including tricycle operators on behalf of MASSOB-BIM, warning that peddlers of such fake documents would be made to face the wrath of the law if caught.
It also urged the public to ignore such documents and report perpetrators to them or any nearest police station for necessary action.
“We can not allow such miscreants to drag the image of MASSOB-BIM to the mud, we need to deal with them. We have only one MASSOB-BIM in the whole world and as such anyone saying we are two says or does so at his own risk” the group warned.
